An evening celebrating the collaboration of legendary banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck and the endlessly versatile string quartet Brooklyn Rider. Moving seamlessly between their diverse worlds, these five musicians unveil a rich range of possibilities for this untapped combination. The program is anchored by Night Flight On Water, Béla’s newly composed quintet for banjo and string quartet, as well as works from Brooklyn Rider’s signature repertoire, solo music by Béla, and other collaborative surprises.

WPAS performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation and by an anonymous gift in appreciation of Douglas Wheeler’s continuing efforts on behalf of WPAS.
